In recognition of exceptional performance, the company administers an annual discretionary cash bonus of up to 15% for every employee. New team members become eligible to partake in the bonus initiative from their date of joining and, subject to a minimum 3-month length of service, will receive a pro-rata bonus in their first AFME performance year. The disbursement of bonuses is paid after the end of the AFME financial year (31st October).
